Bundesliga Picks – Matchday 26
While some individuals might be hesitant to jump right into the Bundesliga Soccer Odds action, we're running to the sportsbooks with four picks on four teams. While the over-under totals look juicy and they're easy to wager on, we'll stick to money-line bets.
Schalke 04 at Borussia Dortmund
The second-ranked team in the Bundesliga has a few injury-related doubts in play in addition to looking to secure a home victory despite not having fans in attendance. Both Emre and Axel Witsel were injured in training this week, which makes Schalke 04 a pretty live underdog in the Revier derby. Key fixtures Marco Reus and Dan-Axel Zagadou are also likely out, so hopping in on Schalke (+480, Bet $100 to win $480 at DraftKings) is definitely the play. PICK: Schalke 04
Leipzig at Freiburg
This is expected to be one of the most lopsided matchups as the Bundesliga opens back up. Swedish midfielder Emil Forsberg will be absent for the visitors, who hung a 3-0 win on EPL squad Tottenham before we saw everything shut down. Leipzig won the most recent matchup between these teams by a 4-1 count and should hold serve here as a heavy favorite. PICK: Leipzig
Borussia Monchengladbach at Eintracht Frankfurt
Eintracht has a number of talented defensive players largely carving out the team's identity but hasn't started focusing on tactics and tackling until this week. That should help a team led by talented young strikers Alassane Plea and Marcus Thuram to a convincing road victory as they continue their ascent in looking to qualify for the Champions League. PICK: Borussia Monchengladbach
Bayern Munich at FC Union Berlin
This is expected to be the most lopsided contest as the Bundesliga returns. Top-ranked Bayern can lose and would still find itself ahead of second-place Dortmund, but its talent will make it difficult to trip up as it visits Berlin in search of win No. 18. Manchester City's Leroy Sane is expected to make the move to Germany soon but won't be in place for this one. That shouldn't matter much. PICK: Bayern Munich
